I’m thrilled to announce that my ACAD ENGL216 students have just published:
In Antiphon, seventeen undergraduate art students reply to the poetic implications of Natalie Simpson’s Thrum (Talonbooks, 2014). In Thrum Simpson explores how language “gapple[s] every filament twisting without wind” in a roiling boil of the everyday made strange. An “antiphon” is a call-and-response, choir-based form of chant and with Antiphon a choir of students add their artistic responses to the fray.
Each piece is accompanied by a short statement of artistic intent, allowing the artists to expand upon visuality.
In this volume each contributor explores the boundaries of their own expectations allowing language to be loosened from the need to mean in favour of a reveling in sound.
